US, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup finals

Canada, United States and Mexico have been awarded the 2026 FIFA World Cup after the United bid defeated Morocco by 134 votes to 65 today.

"What matters is tomorrow's game, because a World Cup game is very special and we want to give our best and we shall". Aleksandr Golovin's stoppage time free-kick to make it 5-0 was the icing on the cake for the Russians.

To do so would have invited ridicule when it needed to build or renovate the 14 stadiums it wants to use - a task FIFA's technical report said "cannot be overstated".

After controversy surrounded the awarding of the 2018 World Cup to Russian Federation and the 2022 finals in Qatar, the vote was the first to be decided by the FIFA congress.

This new format will have 16 more teams, and 16 more games to enjoy taking the total from 64 to 80 games.

From that point on, it is knockout stages.
